'Centre has stopped aid to MP for fighting Naxals'

Bhopal, Nov 19 (PTI) The Madhya Pradesh government today alleged that despite wiping out Naxalism from Mandla and Dindori districts and curbing it effectively in Balaghat, the Centre has stopped the aid to the state for fighting the menace.

"Instead of rewarding for wiping out Naxalism from Dindori and Mandla districts and effectively curbing it in Balaghat, the Centre has stopped the aid given to the state to fight the menace," Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Uma Shankar Gupta said in the State Assembly, while replying to a debate on deteriorating law and order situation.

He said in Balaghat, Naxalism was not just controlled by the power of gun, but also by carrying out developmental works and by providing benefits of welfare schemes to the people.
